There are two private cars on the end of the westbound California Zephyr that left Chicago today.  They look like the two Northern Sky Rail Charters cars.  This #5 was about an hour late when it came through Agency, Iowa.  The weather was just fine here when it was supposed to come through.

Since my video was blurry, here's a better one filmed by Bradley J. Grefe in Ottumwa, Iowa.  Note the yellow Beetle that stops at the crossing, and then turns away because they didn't want to wait for the rest of Amtrak to pass.  The street they went down was flooded.

Nice video, thanks for sharing!

That Beetle Driver has to be the most impatient driver in Iowa. They had too wait 5 Whole Minutes! Damn Trains! 😊
